    So people are starting to get all of their offers, like me . So this is a thread for those that they have and to continue to process of everyone after the offers have all come in.

    I'll start. So I've applied for:
    • Aberystwyth Uni-Countryside Conservation-240 UCAS points
    • Bournemouth Uni-Ecology and wildlife conservation-300 points with a B in geography
    • University of Cumbria-Conservation Biology-240 UCAS points with a C in biology
    • University of Hull (Scarborough Campus)-BBC
    • University of Worcester-Archaeology & Heritage Studies and Ecology-260 UCAS points


    So I'm now on the stage of thinking what to choose. I'm thinking at the minute of firming Scarborough and then making Aberystwyth or Worcester my insurance but I'm not sure. I'm booked on to a post-applicant open day at Aberystwyth and then as long as they have them I'm going on one for the other two as well. I need another look at Worcester anyway.

    So hows it going for the rest of you?

    It might be a good idea to wait until you get the results from your January exams, that way you'll have a better idea of what grades you'll get, and hence which to put as your firm/insurance.

    The thing is none of my offers are high compared to what I am predicted and what I know I can get. I'm predicted A*/A,A,B,C so unless something really does go wrong then it'll be fine I'm sure. And they are not predicted grades that sound unreasonable at all.

    I have all the offers I'm expecting to get, I know Edinburgh are going to reject me and my best friend told me Birmingham apparently have a no resit policy. At the moment, it looks like I'm going to firm Manchester and have Liverpool as my insurance.

    • University of Manchester - BA Criminology (DDD)
    • University of Leicester - BA Criminology (DMM)
    • University of Lincoln - BA Criminology (DMM)


    I'll most likely be firming Manchester and making Leicester my insurance. I've still got all three post-applicant days to attend so I won't make any decisions until then
